What is a homestay family? What are the responsibilities of a homestay parent?
A homestay family is just that – a family! They welcome a student into their home and treat them as if they were one of their own children. The family provides much more than room and board, they become the student’s Canadian family. The family also acts as ambassadors for Canada and Canadian culture. Host parents supervise and care for their student throughout their stay.
Every year we welcome students from all over the world into our community, and our utmost importance is the health and safety of our students and host families. We follow the Provincial Health Office guidelines and School District 64 requirements for Covid-19 protocols. Our students will be arriving fully vaccinated.
